Legend of Zelda - Link and Likelike!


acrylic painting upon a 6"x6"inch deep-edged canvas

Been working on this piece lately on the side for a break from the tedious Beachichu painting that's in progress (and should hopefully be done soon, and turn out wonderfully!)

Within The Legend of Zelda for NES, when Link is captured by a Likelike his body is naturally just sat over pretty much with a partial bit of him barely showing.  So for this piece it's based off LikeLikes version with Link's top half plugged nicely into LikeLike's digestive track!  xD  Really happy with the outcome, although the picture doesn't capture the color exactly spot on (the orange and red is a bit more neon looking here).

That's actually how I always pictured the NES-era ones, too! Also, that is TOTALLY how Link is really reacting to having his shield devoured.

He's also saying "Aaagh! He's eating me! Gently eating me! No teeth...Mostly tongue..."

When I was super young playing this on Nes I always thought it was a chandelier..  ^_^
